Metra in August will begin a two-month closure of the West Hinsdale Station on the BNSF Line in Chicago to replace the station’s boarding platforms.
Metra crews will replace existing platforms with asphalt and install new tactile strips on the platform edges.
The station closure was made possible due to low ridership across the Metra system caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. About 20 passengers are currently using the West Hinsdale Station on weekdays, Metra officials said in a press release.
The closure will cut the project timeline in half from four months to two months, Metra officials said.
